I love the opening of the first one and I get really pumped up/excited. However Ringo's drumming in the reprise is so cool, and I love how it leads into "A Little Help From My Friends". So I'd hate to be indecisive but I cannot pick one over the other.

Reprise by a country mile. The opener has a feel of a scene setter that is incredibly necessary but is a bit of a drag to go thru, like a prologue in a book that is a slog and you want to skip, whilst the reprise is when the book has come alive, your nearing the end, you just cannot put it down for love nor money and don't want it to end.

The reprise rocks big time with the scorching guitar intro, Ringo's drums and all the fun throwaway asides from John and Paul. Plus i have always loved the line "Sgt. Pepper's one and only lonely hearts club band", it flows so neatly.

I agree, but don't think it's by a 'country mile'.   Also I never feel like skipping the intro.  I love how both build up to the next song too.  I went with the reprise because it just rocks more, and it leaves you wanting more.

It's not a word I've actually heard pronounced many times in real life! But I would assume it's got the "prize" pronunciation, same as "reprisal"

There used to be a record company in the USA called Reprise, and it was pronounced "re-preez." I would hear commercials on the radio, and the announcer would say something about "Frank Sinatra's latest album on Reprise Records…" Plus, I just looked the word up on the website on Howjsay.com, and they pronounce it re-preez. http://www.howjsay.com/index.p.....mit=Submit  Even with this knowledge, I think I'm gonna steer clear of this word. I'm not comfortable with it. When the need arises, I'll use the synonym recapitulate. I like that word.

I like both versions of the song equally well; the album opener, and the, uh… recapitulation

Maybe it's an accent thing like some places pronounce it one way and some another way.

I keep finding "re-preez," but then again, the word "reprisal" is pronounced "re-prize-al." It is troublesome words like this that make the English language difficult to learn. 

Isn't that just like the Beatles to invoke a word like that? I can picture a missing verse of "Hello Goodbye:" "You say re-preez, I say re-prize, you say true, and I say lies, lies, lies…" Or, ya know, maybe I can't picture that.
